Having started his career at Scottish Gas, Iain has worked in the changing global energy sector for well over 40 years. This includes just over 25 years in recruitment and executive search within the sector.
Retiring in July 2020, Iain spent the previous 15 years as Managing Partner, EMEA Energy, at Korn Ferry, including a period of two years leading all of Korn Ferry’s UK business.
